Bridgeman quote

Sunday, May 24, 2009

I was reading Bridgeman's Drawing From Life book and came across a quote that I think is a good reminder for me.

"There should be a decided difference between the tones. The number of tones should be as few as possible. Avoid all elaborate or unnecessary tones and do not make four tones or values where only three are needed. It is important to keep in mind the big, simple masses and to keep your shading simple, for shading does not make a drawing."

George B. Bridgeman
